One Arm Triceps Pushdown – Benefits
- The One arm triceps pushdown is an isolation, single-joint move, which isolates the triceps without the assistance of other muscle groups or joints. Triceps pushdown can be used as an arm toning exercise or as a muscle building exercise.
- With cables you can isolate each arm and focus more on the triceps muscle. The cables offer a different effect from dumbbells and free weights, because the cables will add a constant tension throughout the range of motion. Also, when you use a single-sided cable, it is impossible to cheat with your strong arm when your weaker arm gets fatigued.
